Soap As a Lubricant

A normal bar of soap can work well as a lubricant when applied to metal. Use soap on screws before you screw them into hardwood. You can also use soap to speed up a stubborn zipper. Run your handsaw blade over a bar of soap and it will cut through wood more easily. It also will speed up the runners on windows, sliding doors and drawers.

Thanks
